Notice of Intended Action

Proposing rule making related to fact-finding interviews regarding contractor registration revocation and providing an opportunity for public comment

The Labor Commissioner hereby proposes to amend Chapter 150, "Construction Contractor Registration," Iowa Administrative Code.

Legal Authority for Rule Making

This rule making is proposed under the authority provided in Iowa Code section 91C.6.

State or Federal Law Implemented

This rule making implements, in whole or in part, Iowa Code section 91C.5.

Purpose and Summary

For a contractor that no longer meets the criteria for registration, Iowa Code section 91C.5 establishes a revocation procedure requiring a fact-finding interview to assure that a contractor is not in compliance with registration requirements. Subrule 150.11(3), which relates to Iowa Code section 91C.5, defaults to an in-person fact-finding interview with an option for a telephone interview. The proposed amendment to subrule 150.11(3) defaults to a telephone fact-finding interview with videoconference as an option, but also provides for a contractor to request an in-person fact-finding interview at least 72 hours before the interview is scheduled to begin.

Fiscal Impact

This rule making has no fiscal impact to the State of Iowa.

Jobs Impact

After analysis and review of this rule making, no impact on jobs has been found.

The following rule-making action is proposed:

Amend subrule 150.11(3) as follows:

150.11(3) Fact-finding interview. The purpose of the fact-finding interview is to ensure the contractor is not in compliance before the registration is revoked. All fact-finding interviews shall be held in the offices of the division. A telephone interview may be conducted upon request. The contractor may file a request for an in-person fact-finding interview at least 72 hours before the fact-finding interview is scheduled to begin. Otherwise, the fact-finding interview will be conducted by telephone. The contractor may notify the fact finder of a telephone number to use at least 24 hours before the fact-finding interview is scheduled to begin. Otherwise, the fact finder shall call the number on file for the contractor. The fact-finding interview may be conducted via videoconference if the fact finder and the contractor make arrangements in advance.
